Mostly cons. My experience with mechanical gages and such long lines is  
sluggish response. Bleeding the air out of the line helps, but it's still slow  to 
respond compared to an electric gage. 
The only plus is, mechanical gages  come in 270 degree sweeps, whereas 
electric gages are typically 90 degree. Not  that it matters much in the end...

What are  the pros and cons of using a mechanical oil pressure gauge with 
the  necessary 15 foot oil pressure line??  Electric gauge isn't much 
more  expensive, but I already have a mechanical gauge...   comments??
